Amanda Seyfried likes to read what people write about her on Twitter.

The 'Mean Girls' actress has revealed that she often searches her own name on the social networking site to see what her fans or critics have to say about her latest work.

She told the latest issue of Britain's ELLE magazine: ''You can't take yourself too seriously if you don't wanna die.

''So yeah, sometimes I read the feed on Twitter where people are talking about me. I was scrolling one day, and there was something really sweet, like, 'Amanda heart heart' and a picture of me.

''And then there was, 'All movies starring Amanda Seyfried are definitely going to be awful'''.

The 28-year-old star - who is dating 'He's Just Not That Into You' actor Justin Long - says she deals with the abuse

because she likes to see whether people who ask her for photographs end up posting them online.

She explained: ''Well, I want to see what people have posted. Like if a have a weird conversation with someone in the

street and they take a picture of me, sometimes I want to see whether they put it online - it's stupid, I shouldn't really. I have a healthy curiosity.''
